  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the lever About a dozen years ago when we had the house built, we chose the Commonwealth levers for all doors (about 20 interior and 6 keyed-alike exterior). As time went on, I've finished out the basement and that meant another 7 interior handles, all, of course, were the Kwikset Commonwealth levers. We like the convenience of a lever when opening a door with your hands full and being able to use the same key on all of them, especially since a couple have had to be replaced due to constant use (we have a busy household) and re-keying the new locks was a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service I built my house in 1998 and installed all Kwikset Commonwealth locks. I live on the Texas coast which is a harsh environment and, after about 5 years the finish on my locks started deteriorating. I knew the locks had a lifetime finish guarantee, but I waited another 12 years before contacting Kwikset customer service in 2015. I provided photos of the deteriorated locks and Kwikset sent me replacement locks with no hassle. This consisted of 7 double-keyed deadbolts, 7 keyed lever sets and 1 handleset for my front door. I had several small problems with the order, but Kwikset promptly handled these problems also. You can't beat that...........................

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used Kwikset in all my homes This is the first keyed lever we have used on an exterior door. The look is great in our new home and for the first time since 1996 have experienced a failure, which is a pretty good track record. The only problem we have ever encountered is with this model. The door will no longer shut under weight of a spring closing door without turning the handle. Since this is an exterior door the inability of the door closing under its own weight was enough to deduct one star, from what is otherwise an excellent product. If I were living alone, it would not be a concern. However with 2 7 y.o. children and other members the door just remains partially open to the winter weather. With all that said, I would reccomend this product, other Kwikset knobs and deadbolts. They have always worked as expected and have been (with a few minor exceptions) very durable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made. Supported excellently. I live at 9000 feet altitude, in the Colorado Rockies where the sun is intense. The function of these exterior handsets has been excellent. The finish stood up for about 15 years on the door handle that is in direct sunlight for most of the day. Once it started to show signs of deterioration, Kwikset replaced it quickly and happily. I am very impressed with the ease of the replacement and the Smart Key function.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great Bought this model about 2 years ago. Unit is good looking but within 3 months the set screw holding exterior handle on would back out every 3-4 weeks, even after tightening HARD. Finish wore off badly after 1 year too. Kwikset replaced under warranty, no questions. Replacement unit set screw holds fine but finish is wearing badly. Not impressed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought all kwikset levers locks for my house and had some problems with a lock and when I called the company was told to send a picture of the lock. After sending the picture I was told that they were going to replace all of my locks due to discoloration and that the warrenty was for life.Money well spent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT IMPROVEMENT I had knob type door hardware on my 3 entrance doors to my condo. I replaced all 3 with the handle type.. The replacement was simple (I did all 3 in about an hour) the action of the handle was much improved and felt much more solid plus the opening and closing was greatly improved. Dale Starks

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the handle and finish Purchased these for all of our exterior doors. Love that you can flip the handle when you have your hands full, instead of trying to turn a knob. Also love the feature of being able to change the key without having to take them to a locksmith. Will continue to purchase Kwikset from now on.
